Biden chose for AG Merrick Garland, who as a prosecutor called for the death penalty and was instrumental in the passage of the unconstitutional 96 pro execution law, who denied GTMO prisoner rights, upheld draconian marijuana regulations, denied most prisoner mercy appeals, and paved the way for Citizens United ruling that $ is speech.

Abolitionists around the world asked Donald Trump's attorney general, Jeffrey Rosen, scheduled to be in office less than 1 month, to cancel pending federal executions after William Barr executed 10 prisoners, the first federal prisoner murders in 16 years. Meanwhile, a growing number called on Joseph Biden to withdraw the nomination of Merrick Garland, who has as a prosecutor called for the death penalty and has been one of those responsible for the unconstitutional 1996 law, The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996


1. Merrick Garland has been named by Biden as his attorney general pick. The Democratic Party platform includes abolition of capital punishment, outlawing the death penalty. Garland called for McVeigh's execution Christopher Emery and 74 coworkers spent 8 and a half years working on a documentary exposing the black op of the OKC bombing. The 2 hour documentary "A Noble Lie" resulted and can be seen on Youtube:

Merrick Garland's action helped pass pro death penalty unconstitutional legislation, The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. Garland knew that the OKC bombing was a government black op initiated by the FBI and CIA and was involved in its coverup, including the suppression of 143 boxes of evidence that McVeigh was operating as a federal employee.

2. He showed little mercy in cases involving defendant appeals. German Lopez at Vox wondered after Obama's nomination of Garland if the notoriously conservative Scalia had a more liberal record on criminal justice issues than Garland did."

3. In 2003 he ruled that Guantanamo Bay detainees could not seek relief in civilian courts. sl Odah v. United States

4. He further expanded the Citizens United ruling that money is speech and paved the way for greater buying of v. FEC Source: a 58 pg analysis of his court cases by the ACLU.

5. He has a high percentage of cases in which he backed up federal agencies against petitioners.

6. He upheld the DEA classificat‭ion of marijuana as a dangerous drug

7. Garland rules against third party voting rights

in his decision against the right of write-in voters to have their votes count.

"In Libertarian Party v. District of Columbia Board of Elections,474 he joined a unanimous opinion holding that a Washington, D.C. law which prevented write-in votes for a third-party candidate from being officially tallied and reported did not amount to a severe burden on that individual's associational rights and, therefore, did not require the application of strict scrutiny". Source of data: Congressional Research Svc 75 pages of research from the Congressional Research Svc on Garland's record

8. His ruling in the Glassman opinion Navab Safavi v Glassman 637 F.3d 311 (D.C. Cir. 2011), "is notable for dicta that could be read to restrict beyond present doctrine public employee speech rights in the context of agencies that must maintain the appearance of impartiality." ACLU link above

9. In Koszola v. F.D.I.C. 393 F.3d 1294 (D.C. Cir. 2005), he joined Judge (now Justice) Roberts' unanimous panel opinion rejecting a First Amendment claim by an FDIC employee who argued that he had been fired in retaliation for making disclosures of mismanagement and violations of the law by his employer.

10. Garland ruled against LGGTQ plantiffs who sought relief from police brutality


11. In Mpoy v Rhee 758 F.3d 285 (D.C. Cir. 2014), Judge Garland wrote an opinion holding that qualified immunity barred a special education teacher's First Amendment claim of retaliation for being fired after sending an email complaining about administrative misconduct to the school chancellor.
